Primary Culture of Human Antral Endocrine Cells
Part of the Methods in Molecular Medicine book series (MIMM, volume 2)
The mucosal endocrine cells in the antrum are found as individual elements interspersed among the other epithelial cells (i.e., mucin cells) (Fig. 1). In order to establish the factors regulating endocrine cell function, these cells have to be separated not only from the surrounding epithelial cells, but also from circulating and neuronal elements within the stomach.
